The John Roberts Company (CONT’D FROM PAGE 42)


Since the Koenig & Bauer Allpro 110 folder gluer’s in- stallation last October, the firm has never had to use its older folder gluer from a different manufacturer again. The Allpro, with a maximum belt speed of 400m/min, is provid- ing faster running speeds, more capabilities, and quicker makereadies due to its job memory. Its four and six corner attachments allow John Roberts to offer packaging capa- bilities that it hasn’t had in the past. The firm’s folder gluer operators love the ease of its touch screen control panels. Quality control is performed automatically with the ma- chine’s barcode reader and glue detection features. “Immediately, the Allpro folder gluer has given us new capabilities and our sales force has been able to sell new packaging work to gain additional business,” says Zorn. “We’re seeing a wide range of customer jobs going through the Allpro folder gluer using everything from car- ton board to corrugated stock.” “From my position as director of operations, purchas- ing the Koenig & Bauer Allpro 110 folder gluer was a well- planned decision and a very good experience,” says Zorn. “It was absolutely necessary to invest in our bindery to re- main a leader in our field. In my 35 years of experience, I have never had such a smooth and easy installation. This is the first time that we’ve worked with Koenig & Bauer, and I look forward to doing it again. When we asked for extra training time, they arranged an extra week for our operators. This purchase and installation are a big win for The John Roberts Company as far as superior service and additional capabilities. It demonstrates our strong commit- ment to providing our customers with the highest satisfac- tion. We are constantly learning, exploring, and conquer- ing new technology and skills to grow our expertise.” Visit for more information. Georgia-Pacific Helps ON Hospital Exceed Fundraising Expectations The Temiskaming Hospital Foundation in New Liskeard, Ontario, Canada held its 8th Annual Radiothon to raise $50,000 for a new operating table for the hospital. The Radiothon ended with over $12,000 raised. The Englehart, Ontario Georgia-Pacific Oriented Strand Board (OSB) mill heard about the cause and donated $38,000 to help the foundation reach its goal. Approximately 1,000 surgical cases and 150 Cesarean sections are performed annually at Temiskaming Hospital. “That is why it is so impressive that Georgia-Pacific has come forward,” said Temiskaming Hospital Foundation Secretary and Temiskaming Hospital President & CEO Mike Baker. He continued, “People from these commu- nities will benefit from the operating room tables at the Temiskaming Hospital, so it is great to see Georgia-Pacif- ic’s leadership in making such an important contribution to Care Close to Home and our communities.”
